Title: It might happen... Barack Obama
Post by: M Dogg™ on July 28, 2004, 11:26:15 AM
Many are saying he could be the first ever Black U.S. president. I saw him in the news, in the black community, where he used to be a community activist in the South Side of Chicago. I hear him speak, and his a very smart man, who I would not mind seeing as president. I thought Collen Powell would be the first black president, who I would vote for because he seems to be one of the few reasonable people in the public eye, but he has turned down running for years. Barack Obama though has not ruled it out, and is looking to be only the 3rd black senator in U.S. history since 1865. Also, Obama has a stage presents I think only rivaled by Bill Clinton, in terms of speaking, and he doesn't talk regular Democrat, but also very middle of the line, common American, with a left slant. I can see him beig president, though not winning many southern states. But it would be cool to see him run if Kerry loses in 2008, or if Kerry wins, 2012. Though Hillary has to run too, and Edwards who I don't see winning nomination ever. In the end though, it's an exciting time to see all the future possibilities for Democrat hopefuls. After hearing Obama though, I like him in 2008-2012. Obama 4 President.

I think if theres gunna be a black president, then Colin Powell would be the best choice. That guy is a smart mutherfucker, that knows what it takes to become president unlike bush.

have you heard him. His running unoppose in Illinois for the senate because his so popular, Republicans can't find anyone who wants to run against him. He could do it. I heard his speech, and to say the least, only Bill Clinton can rival Obama in speaking, he seems to have what it takes to agree with much of the United States. Could be interesting.

Colin powell lost all chance of becoming a future president when he joined up with bush.
Everyone will remember him when he was at the UN presenting his "facts" of saddams WMD.

I thought it was a great speech...he looks much younger than he really is as well.

He sounds exactly like The Rock.

Definitely President material - he's a career politician remember - his goal in life is to be Pres, whereas Powell and Jesse Jackson were not always thinking about the Presidency so it was easier for them to turn the chance down.

If Powell was ever going to run it would have been against Clinton in '96.  Now Machiavelli is exactly right when he says he has been tainted by Iraq.  Also he is tired and will retire after 2004 regardless of what happens in the election.  He missed his chance.


M Dogg why do you think Edwards wouldn't get the nomination???

If Kerry loses, it's Edwards 2008.  If he wins and gets eight years, it's Edwards 2012 (Clinton 8 years - Gore, Reagan 8 years - Bush, Eisenhower 8 years - Nixon).  The only chance Edwards is not the next nominated one is if Kerry wins, is highly unpopular, so everyone involved in the administration is tainted.  In that case it would leave it wide open for Hillary.

2016 is Barrack's one.  He'll be 54 then. That's Presidential age.  Till then it's Edwards 90% Hillary 10%.

He mentioned that in an interview. His day is actually from Kenya, not African-American, and he choice the name.

Jay, you may be right about Edwards. I actually would have liked him if he would have won the nomination, we'll see. Maybe 2008 is his year. We'll see what happens.

^^ Both sad, but both very true.  No doubt, this man is very intelligent and maybe he's running unopposed in Illinois, but there's still other places in the US where people would find the idea of a black president to be unthinkable.  I do not support this idea in any way but I agree when rampant says he has no chance.

 ::) Can you try any harder to try and be a smart ass.

African immigrants don't like to be called African-American, African-American means you were born here. Obama's dad was not born in the United States, he was born in Kenya, making him African. Obama himself is half African/half white, he was born in the United States, so you can say his African-American, though he identifies with both sides, not just one.

Zarqawi having ties to an organization located in Iraq does not mean that the Iraqi government and Al-Qaeda have ties.

Zarqawi is top leader of Al-Qaeda. The Iraqi government supported and helped him when he came to Iraq because he was  wounded in a battle in Afghanistan - This is fact, its all been prov-en.

I thought Bin Laden was top leader ???.... Are you talking out of your ass again?

The Iraqi GOVERNMENT helped him? So because he was treated in an Iraqi hospital, that means that the Iraqi government automatically has ties to AL-QAEDA? Great fuckin logic. I bet Timothy McVeigh has seen the doctor before.... maybe the U.S. government is helping these terrorists within our own nation. Seriously, you're not presenting shit. You're stretching your shit so far that it doesn't even make sense anymore.

Thats not all i said, if you read the rest:

Quote
Next, the Al Qaeda big shot -- who was wanted by the USA -- traveled to Lebanon to meet with leaders of Hezbollah.(sp?) A short time after that meeting, in October of 2002, Lawrence Foley, an American official, was assassinated in Jordan. The arrested killers said Zarqawi(sp?)  was involved in the plot.

Zarqawi(sp?)  wound up back in Iraq after the assassination of Foley and met up with the Ansar al-Islam (sp?) group, which operated in Northern Iraq and is affiliated with Al Qaeda.

In January 2003, several Ansar terrorists were arrested in Britain and charged with planning to put Ricin in the military food supply. Some of those terrorists fingered Zarqawi(sp?)  in the plot.

Right now, Zarqawi(sp?)  is believed to be in Fallujah working with some of Saddam's former generals in planning terror attacks. Just last week he took credit for killing 13 people in a bombing.

So if this group was in the U.S. and aided him, then the U.S. government would be the one with the ties? Use common sense, retard.
It's like saying the ETA helped some Italian terrorist, would that mean that Spain is supporting Italian terrorists? NO.

I don't want to be known as a pessimist, but more as a voice of reason.  There is no way America is ready to elect a black person president.  There's way too much prejudice still out there, and I just don't see it happening anytime soon at all.  100 years after slaves were freed, the civil rights movement happened.  That's how long change takes in America.

We are all about 16 - 21 (and then Trauma  ;D), so if we be optimistic and say in our lifetime is 80, then that's 20 Presidential elections, give or take.

Now do you really think, with the black and hispanic populations rising, there won't at least be one black candidate running? 

2030 at the latest there will have been a black President.

The problem with minorities is that they never go out and vote. If that changes in the future and minorities do go out and vote, then I can see it happening sometime in the distant future before I'm dead....unless I get hit by a truck tomorrow.
